Our little princess is now 7 months old, where has the time gone?! It honestly still feels like yesterday we were bundling her up and taking her home from the hospital.

I was ment to return to work in February but my baby refused to take a bottle or sippy cup which really didn’t leave me many options with going back to work.
At first I thought how are we going to suvive on one wage but amazing enough we don’t want for anything and our baby has all that she needs. I am glad now that I have been able to stay home with my little girl and enjoy every moment of watching her grow and experiencing her firsts.

I know if I had of gone back to work I would have adjusted to that too but I am glad that different circumstances have given me the oppertutiny to enjoy our little wonder.

  • Good that it worked out the way you wanted for you and your family.


  • I am so pleased that things did not become hard on one income,


  • I have been very lucky to stay at home with my now 4 year old and it’s been great with my older three kids I went back to work so have really enjoyed this special time I have had with my last child.


  • Its lovely (and lucky) that you could stay home a little longer with your baby. Often women have to rush back to work for financial reasons, but when you can manage it is great to be home with them.


  • It’s great that you can stay at home and enjoy bubs. They grow so fast. It feels like just yesterday my 8 year old boy was your bubs age. I wish I could have been to so many more things with my son at his school, but I work full time and not really by choice. Enjoy it for as long as you can :)


  • Wow, you are lucky to be able to stay at home. Enjoy the time you spend with her – they grow up way way too fast!


  • We are totally stretching our budget to the limits so that I can stay home with our little one. Nearly two and becoming a little terror but some days I just think how awesome it is :)


  • my little one is 3 months and i’m hoping I don’t have to go back to work i love spending time with her


  • Fortunately, I never returned to work after having my children. I am one of the lucky ones.

    • It does work differently for everyone – different ways for different families.


  • If you can make ends meet spend as much time as you can with your gorgeous bundle. I went back after 9 months with my first and 2 months with my 2nd and miss them everyday I am at work. They just grow up way too fast.


  • they are wonderful, and they grow and learn so fast, enjoy


  • I am so happy for you I stayed at home and would not change it for the world I never missed any of the firsts. I did go to work when My Son was in high school buy was back when he got back, But I love staying with the kids
